tldr: Label "Unicorn-Kanchana" is being retired.
Name is returning to just "Unicorn".
Label situation is more complex than Wikipedia portrays as at 14/10/17.
Label's UK homepage (as given on Wikipedia) shows only "Unicorn" under imprint on displayed CA. Not "Unicorn-Kanchana".

A 2017 email from Heritage Records, who are licensed to distribute Unicorn catalogue recordings, explains that the label was sold a few years ago and is again "Unicorn", no longer "Unicorn-Kanchana". There was some reduction in the Unicorn (Unicorn-Kanchana?) catalogue prior to sale, with some Unicorn masters being sold to performers and NMC acquiring a significant number of contemporary British recordings. Therefore these sold Unicorn recordings can now appear on other labels.
